a nice little saturday

we ventured out for a bit saturday afternoon
and stopped by a little (tiny) flea market.
definitely picked over, but still such beautiful patina on the leftovers.
i was tempted by the old truck grill
(how awesome would that be in silas’ room on the wall?!)
but the $400 price tag was just a touch (*cough*) out of my price range.
instead i settled on a lampshade frame
that i’ll eventually cover with a tutu or ruffles and hang as a chandelier in my girls’ room.
just another project to add to the list…

    sounds like a fun Saturday to me :)

    Have you ever seen the show "American Pickers"? – they find some cool stuff!

    What a fun day. Isn't it fun to add to your list. I love knowing that a project is waiting just in case I get the urge.

    Oh the project list….ever growing. Flea markets and thrift stores never do help to shorten them…but we couldn't have it any other way!

    Sounds like a fun trip! I'll bet you could make a faux grill somehow. You could even make it look rusty with the right paint. :)
